Warning Signs. Problems develop when the body’s cooling mechanisms aren’t able to work properly, such as when: Air temperature exceeds body temperature - the body cannot easily cool itself Air is humid - sweat doesn’t evaporate quickly Sweat doesn’t evaporate easily from a person who works/exercises hard while wrapped in heavy clothing or protective gear Heat-related illness is a concern in any weather - anywhere!.
